Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve, Americans participate in a variety of traditions honoring a wide range cultures and faiths. Watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one such ritual. A showcase of the biggest models in the industry and easily the sexiest night on network TV, for 9 million people (sometimes more) it’s a holiday-season event that is not to be missed. For the first time in its 21-year history, the VS show will be filmed in Paris this year. While it will air on December 5th on CBS at 10pm EST, it’s actually being taped several days before then, so expect photos to start surfacing earlier. This year’s show is also the biggest one ever, with 52 models taking a turn on the catwalk—18 for the very first time. Here’s a recap of who you can expect to see on the runway this year, bopping along to performances by the likes of Lady Gaga, The Weeknd and Bruno Mars. Sadly, Cara Delevingne, Candice Swanepoel, and Behati Prinsloo (who recently became moms) are sitting this one out.
